THE LABOR CODE WITH COMMENTS AND CASES VOLUME I (REVISED EDITION) by Atty. Cesario A. Azucena, Jr. (; In its twenty-five years this textbook receives most extensive changes in this edition to enrich and update the contents and to improve the expositions. The first group of changes consists of additions of new laws and new issuances from the Department of Labor and Employment in the form mostly of new or revised implementing rules. The new laws include R.A. No. 10706 that prohibits “ambulance chasing” against OFWs, or their heirs: R.A. No. 10801 governing OWWA; and R.A. No. 10911, the Anti-age Discrimination law. Numerous Supreme Court decisions that significantly illuminate or modify earlier rulings are also explained.

The second group of changes is addition of new topics to enhance the logical and comprehensive coverage of the subject. Examples of these are the triple character of employment relationship, employment-at-will as contracted to tenurial security, the lex locus contractus principle, and the McBurnie guidelines. Codal provisions and court. The third and last groups of changes pertain to simplifying or synthesizing of the expositions. But, always, correctness of message prevails over the merits of prose.
